King Abdullah Mosque
Suleiman An-Nabulsi Street
King Abdullah MosqueOne of Amman's most distinctive landmarks, the enormous azure blue dome of the King Abdullah Mosque can be seen for miles across the city. It was built in 1989 by King Hussein in memory of his grandfather.
This is one of the few mosques in Jordan that can be entered by non-Muslims, so it's well worth a visit, but it's best avoid midday prayers if you're not a worshipper. The vast interior is deliberately plain and simple, making a sharp contrast to the modern, geometrically bold exterior. Remove your shoes before entering; women should cover their hair.
